Twitter and Facebook – Help Me Again: Why Should I Do It? Dangers to the Gospel from Social Media
Let me state up front I am not a Luddite. I love technology, sometimes a bit too much. But in my work for The Navigators we spend a lot of time thinking of how to communicate with and transfer concepts, ideas and meaning to people under the age of 40 (which blessedly, I am still a member of for another 9 months).
One of the key things that all the best thinkers say is that you have Twitter, you have to FaceBook and MySpace. In other words, the Church (by which I mean all Christians but especially leaders) is failing the Gospel if it is not actively working through these media.
